Blood-Drenched Beard

Daniel Galera

Blood-Drenched Beard is the gripping, visceral English-language debut from Daniel Galera.

His father shoots himself, and all he's left with is the old cattle dog and a vague desire for explanation. He loves swimming so he drifts south to Garopaba, a quiet little town on the Brazilian coast, where his grandfather disappeared in mysterious, possibly brutal, circumstances decades before.

There, in the midst of romantic flings and occasional trips, he comes to discover more than he could ever have imagined – not just about his grandfather, but also about himself.
